From British daily The Morning Star:
Gender gap work ‘the least’ bosses can do
Friday 24 April 2009
MOANING bosses have been slammed by unions for claiming it would be too much of a burden to publish details of staff wages to reveal existing gender pay gaps.
Firms employing more than 250 workers will be encouraged to give pay details and if enough progress has not been made by 2013, legislation will be brought forward.
The measure will be included in the Equalities Bill on Monday.
A new survey of 150 human resources managers showed that almost two-thirds of firms had not audited gender pay differences.
A similar number did not believe men in their organisation were paid more than women.
TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said yesterday: “The UK will never tackle the problem of unequal pay until there are systems in place exposing the huge gap between what men and women doing similar jobs in the same workplaces are paid.
“The business lobby will of course complain loudly about what they see as another burden on business, but pay audits are the very least employers should do if we are to finally get rid of low and unequal pay for female workers in the UK.”

Improved methods of measuring and publicising the gender pay gap could hold the key to help companies reduce inequality, equality campaigners have said: here.
